I am gearing up to teach a unit on fractions. In the state of Oregon, students don’t learn fractions until 3rd grade. I am thankful that Common Core will start them earlier, because they can be a hard concept to grasp!
I started out my unit by using Lindsey The Teacher Wife’s Fraction Fun unit last week. We did her sort and made the little books. I also loved the posters to add to my math wall as the students learned the vocabulary words denominator and numerator.
My district uses the math curriculum Bridges in Mathematics from The Math Learning Center. Bridges has some great lessons, but they needed to be supplemented with some paper pencil practice (gotta pass that state test!). You can find ALL of the Bridges supplemental practice pages for free on their website:

Here is the worksheet on Google Docs for you to use:
How do you teach fractions? Do you know of any great websites that teach to your state standards or the Common Core for math?
